African Blue opal releases stress and "old" emotional wounds and trauma. It increases strength and clarity. Blue opal stimulates creativity and helps ideas flow more freely. The word Opal originates from the sanskrit word "upala" which means precious stone. Opals are good luck and healing stones. Opals help to relieve depression and enable the wearer to find true happiness and contentment. Opals encourage spiritual growth. It is the birthstone of October.
Sandalwood is the name of a class of fragrant woods from trees in the genus Santalum, they retain their fragrance for decades. ***Write your wish on a chip of sandalwood and burn in cauldron. As it burns it sets the magic flowing. Sandalwood helps to promote spiritual awareness, feelings of well being and stress relief. These Sandalwood beads are fair trade, they come from Kathmandu Nepal.

**MIND, BODY, SPIRIT COLLECTION"
Naked Planet Jewelry is designed to balance the body using the healing properties of gemstones and crystals. For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have utilized the power of crystals to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages, thus facilitating the free flow of prana (energy) throughout the body. On a cellular level, our bodies and gemstones are both made up of mineral silicon-dioxide. Therefore,we are naturally receptive to the vibrations of crystals as they transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. When crystals are placed directly on your body, they have a powerful vibratory effect that surges from the crystal to you. Each gemstone energy serves as a tool to help heal, protect and reduce stress in our mind, body and spirit.
WHAT ARE MALA BEADS?
A Japa mala or mala in (Sanskrit:माला) mālā, means garland. It is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists. Malas are used for keeping count while meditating, reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name of a deity. This practice is known in Sanskrit as japa. Malas are used to support Dharana (Sanskrit: धारणा) means concentration, introspective focus and one-pointedness of mind, it is the six limb of Patanjali's 8 limb path of yoga. Dhyana (Sanskrit: ध्यान) literally means "contemplation, reflection" and "profound, abstract meditation". Dhyana is contemplating, reflecting on whatever Dharana has focussed on. Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads. My mala beads are finished with a tassel, or two hanging beads or bracelet style with the guru bead finished sideways for ease to wear as a bracelet.
I mindfully hand knotted all my mala necklaces reciting a mantra as a blessing to increase their vibration. They are cleansed with Palo Santo which is a sacred wood related to Frankincense and Myrrh. Palo Santo purifies, cleanses and banishes misfortune and evil spirits, therefore. It is considered a "holy wood" and a sacred wood of prayer.
I pride my work with attention to detail, color, design and craftsmanship. My Malas are cleansed with Palo Santo then carefully wrapped in paper and a muslin pouch. A card with the metaphysical meanings of each stone is included along with instructions on how to meditate and take proper care of your mala as well as a special mantra card.
